You know I live by the sea right?
Fancy coming for a wander?
I walked to a client’s house the other morning along the prom and took some pics with my mobile..
These beach huts are the first ones I come to if I walk to the beach from my house (takes about 2 minutes)
It was such a lovely day that there were actually quite a few people working on their huts, clearing them out after the winter and painting them, I loved looking inside them, but didn’t take pics for fear of being labelled some kind of stalker.
Here we are in the Spa Gardens. The building there is a tea room.
Nice things to look at, lovely benches to sit on.
The white building in the right of the above picture is where the beach chalets are. These are like brick beach huts that are set back from the prom and have their own little patch of garden in front. Very 50’s.
Palm trees in Felixstowe?
The cranes in the distance are on Felixstowe Dock. The white building in the middle is the Pier building and you can just make out the old wooden pier out at sea (must take closer photos of that) You can’t walk on the wooden Pier out at sea anymore as it has been condemned and apparently the owners can’t afford to fix it. Which is sad.
During the Second World War the majority of the pier, at the time one of the longest in the country and complete with its own train, was purposely demolished by Royal Engineers to prevent it being used as an easy landing point for enemy troops.
There, now you can have a rest and a nice cup of tea.
I’ll take you for a walk somewhere else soon!
